Council hosts pop-up displays for National Recycling Week

Snowy Monaro Regional Council is supporting Planet Ark's National Recycling Week with a series of pop-up information displays throughout the region.

National Recycling Week is being held from Monday to Sunday, November 17. The focus of this year's event is to tackle the most common recycling myths.

Council's Resource and Waste Education Officers will help you learn more about common recycling habits, demonstrate techniques to improve these habits and assist you in reducing your overall waste.

Displays will be held at the following locations.

Michelago Spring Fair on Sunday, November 10 from 10am-3pm, Jindabyne Recycle Right Pop-Up Stall at Nuggets Crossing Shopping Centre on Tuesday, November 12 from 10am - 4pm and in Bombala on Maybe Street on Monday, November 18 from 10am to 3pm.

Snowy Monaro residents can participate in Planet Ark's Buy It Back Day on Saturday, November 16. This program encourages consumers to buy second hand or buy products made from recycled materials.

Planet Ark's National Recycling Week is an annual opportunity for councils, workplaces, schools and individuals to brush up on their knowledge and become successful recyclers.
